Objectives and Procedures of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program, 1970-71: Assessment Report No. 7.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
The general goal of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program is to provide citizens and educators with information regarding the quality and progress of the State's system of public education. The State Board of Education recently approved four objectives of the educational assessment effort which will move the program toward this general goal in 1970-71. These include the provision of state level public information, the provision of information to local school systems, to students and parents, and the provision of information regarding educational progress. A discussion of the rationale for their inclusion in the program is presented, together with the methodologies that will be used to fulfill them. Additionally, this report includes two sections designed to clarify certain aspects of the 1970-71 program. The second section--which uses a question-answer format--presents information regarding the substance of the program and information regarding certain of its specific procedures. The third section presents information regarding the work of the "Task Force on the Goals of Michigan Education." This task force has drafted a set of common educational goals for Michigan which have been modified and tentatively adopted by the State Board of Education for public discussion. (Author/PR)
